Crimson Roast or “Da Hong Pao” is considered to be the king of Wuyi Oolong teas. It is roasted by hand slowly for many hours to give it its warmth and roasted aroma.
This dark roasted Wuyi Oolong tea is prized by tea collectors around the world. It is grown on the mineral-rich terroir of the Wuyi Mountains, which gives this tea its signature minerality, viscosity, and intense chocolate flavor.
Traditional Name: 大红袍 [Pinyin: Dà Hóng Páo; Wade-Giles: ta-hung-p'ao]
